Thread: In this historic moment (I'll keep emphasizing) where we have the 1st Black woman in the top tier of a major party's POTUS primaries, the MSM needs to rise to occasion and cover #Kamala's campaign with the competence it warrants. As I will address @time missed the mark.
Rather than inform us of the specifics in #Kamala's #3AMAgenda Molly decides to regurgitate the FALSE narrative that Kamala's agenda is vague/ noncommittal. That is lazy/uninformative. Her plans are specific AND rooted in YEARS of legislative groundwork.
As I mentioned earlier, writers tend to approach #Kamala with cynicism & perpetuate that notion. I've asked before "who is they" now let me ask "who are people"? This insinuates that #KamalaHarris is shifty rather than warm & authentic as we've seen repeatedly.

"There is a piece that is about restructuring the system in a way that we actually create accountability... creating standards that are for prosecutors & police officers."

Mentions violation of trust should have consequences #Kamala2020
@KamalaHarris @angela_rye @dwatkinsworld @DrPhilGoff @JamiraBurley "For too long we have put the onus on the community... to work on how the reciprocal relationship of trust should occur instead of putting the responsibility equally, if not more, on those who have actually create the distrust in terms of how the system works." @KamalaHarris

Suspect is a "documented gang member...should have been in prison, and not allowed to be in our community...Based upon his prior arrest record, he is a violent individual who should have never been considered for early release, based upon Assembly Bill 109" - Chief Tom DaRe
And now 4 people are dead. I ask again, when is the national conversation on keeping behind bars people who need to be kept behind bars?

I ask @benshapiro @LarryOConnor @RealKiraDavis @KurtSchlichter and anyone else with a California voice to interview @GardenGrovePD Chief Tom DaRe, who today asked Sacramento to rethink the disastrous AB109

"Hilliard pleaded not guilty during his arraignment, was released, and ordered to stay away from the victim."

Hi #CriminalJusticeReform #CJReform, could you work on keeping behind bars someone charged with 20 cases of sexual assault. That'd be swell. Thanks.
“We’re doing our part, trying to protect the community, trying to keep people from reoffending, and committing these kinds of crimes. Then literally, Friday someone’s arrested, then Saturday morning they’re back out and recommitting (crimes) within a day or two"
Make sure to read every horrifying word of this article

While we try to wrap our minds around all the crimes described in the #MuellerReport and how they can’t be “proved” we have to wonder what the millions of “guests” of #IncarcerationNation think and feel right now..
The American criminal justice system holds 2.3M people in 1,719 state prisons, 109 federal prisons, 1,772 juvenile facilities, 3,163 local jails, 80 Indian Country jails,military prisons, immigration detention,civil commitment centers, state psychiatric hospitals./2
Every year over 600,000 enter prison gates but people go to jail 10.6M X each year.Jail churn is particularly high as most ppl in jails haven’t been convicted. Some will make bail within hours or days while many others are too poor to make bail &remain behind bars until trial./3

It's not possible to comment intelligently on #Mueller & the entire #investigation without reading LICENSED TO LIE: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice, self-funded and published in 2014 for the purpose of educating the public on the need for #CriminalJusticeReform
2. It crosses @GOP & @DNC administrations but has come to expose serious political abuses of #DOJ. It's made a lot of powerful people very angry.
The @FedSoc has not let me speak on topic since the book came out.
My own #BarAssociation @TexasBarCLE won't let me speak on it. WHY?
3. The book is TRUE, reads like a legal thriller but NAMES prosecutors who rose to positions of great power on the backs of people they wrongfully convicted.
It NAMES federal judges who turned a blind eye to egregious injustices.
No one has challenged a word of it, nor can they.

(THREAD) There are a lot of great things you can do to support people on the front lines of fights to #KeepFamiliesTogether, #StopSeparation, #EndDetention, #DefundHate, #AbolishICE, and #AbolishCBP.

One of the best places to give $$$ is to a community bond fund.
Bond and bail funds don't have many overhead costs, so all or nearly all of your donations directly benefit impacted families. 100% of $$$ given to our Fronterizo Fianza Fund go towards paying bonds and small commissary/telephone deposits. fianzafund.org/about-the-fund…
Immigrant bond funds are doing great work. @eicommunitybond is working to free every person arrested during recent workplace raids in Iowa holaamericanews.com/iowa-city-orga…
